Service career Edit Edit
The five-year mission Edit
She was a non-commissioned officer serving aboard the USS Enterprise in 2266, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. She was assigned as the captain’s personal yeoman by Starfleet Headquarters.
Initially, Captain Kirk was disgruntled that Starfleet had assigned a female yeoman to his command. However, after seeing Rand's efficient work ethic in action, Kirk grew to respect her as a crewmember and friend. Despite their professional relationship, an undercurrent of sexual attraction remained between the two. Under stressful situations, Kirk, however, could not requite the feelings Rand felt for him, due to his position as ship's captain. In certain crises, Kirk and Rand were instinctively drawn together or reached out for each other.
